Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Gregory House is an attractive three-bedroom Grade II listed property thought to date back to at least the mid 1700's and located within a short walk of the village and all its amenities. Set in a terrace of period properties, this spacious and light home has the added benefit of off-road parking at the rear and the potential to extend and improve. The property has been updated throughout in recent years whilst retaining many of the original features, including flagstone flooring and attractive fireplaces. This well-presented family home has a dual aspect living room with a small study area and a dining room leading out to the kitchen and utility. The utility and outside lean-to lend themselves to an extension to increase the kitchen into one big open-plan kitchen breakfast room. Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is a courtyard outside the kitchen with steps up to the off-road parking and the garden beyond, which is mainly laid to lawn and split over two levels with lots of established trees and shrubs.

Accommodation 
Steps up from the road and a path lead to the wooden front door and on into the entrance a hall with an attractive flag stone floor. A door leads into the dual aspect lounge with further flag stone flooring and a feature open fire on a flagstone heath with wooden beam over. Further period features include exposed stone walls with timber detail, window seats and wooden ceiling beams. This attractive and spacious reception room has an area at one end with space perfectly suited for a small home office. To the right of the hall is the dining room with a large stone inglenook fireplace with a heavy beam over and a wood burner on a flagstone hearth. This is another light and spacious room with a large window with seat to the front elevation with wooden shutters and oak floorboards. From the dining room a door leads out to a rear hall/breakfast area with stairs leading to the first floor and plenty of storage space, including an under-stairs cupboard. This opens directly...

Outside 
The front is enclosed from the road by a recently re-built stone wall and mature hedging, with steps leading up to the front garden. The front garden is split by the path leading to the front door with gravel and established shrubs either side. At the rear a door from the kitchen leads out to a small courtyard garden with ample space for a table and chairs and storage. From here, steps lead up to the gravelled drive with off-road parking for two cars. The drive can also be accessed by steps up from the utility and lean-to. Beyond the drive, the elevated garden is over two levels and is mainly enclosed by attractive stone walls. The garden is deceptively spacious and sunny. The majority of the garden is also very private and has a selection of well-established plants and mature trees, including apple trees. Towards the rear of the garden there is a large vegetable bed and a shed.

Parking 
On the left-hand side of the terrace of properties there is a drive which leads around the back of the properties. Each of the properties has access to a drive and off-road parking, including Gregory House, which is at the end of the drive. You will find double wooden gates enclosing a gravelled drive with off-road parking for two cars. This could easily be extended to create additional parking if required.

About the Property 
Gregory House is a Grade II listed property thought to date back to at least 1750. The current owners have improved and maintained this attractive property and all its period features to a very high standard. The original flagstone floors in the lounge and hall were restored a couple of years ago. The roof was completely re-felted two years ago and a new flue was installed for the wood burner. The sellers have recently considered extending at the rear of the property to open up the kitchen into the courtyard to create one larger kitchen breakfast room. The work would also have included enlarging the utility room to create space for a second shower room and further storage.
